Don’t Worry Citizen, Comic Jumper is here to Save the Day!
Twisted Pixel, the crazy minds behind ‘Splosion Man, have announced that Comic Jumper will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade on October 6th. This hilarious action game is looking very promising, bringing many comic genres–modern, silver age, fantasy, and manga–together into one explosive package. The game will provide 2D action sequences as Captain Smiley fights enemies from panel to panel in a comic book. If you’re thinking Comix Zone for the Genesis you won’t be too far off from that mark. The game will also include 3D action and shooter elements.
Check below for the official press release and plenty of media for all. You can thank us later.
Threatened with becoming just another failed superhero, Captain Smiley is
rescued by the fine folks at Twisted Pixel who provide him with a base of
operations and Comic Jumping technology allowing him-and his back-talking
“chestkick” named Star-to leap into other comic books and save misguided
plotlines, so that they may earn enough cash to catapult their superhero
careers back into the limelight. From the creators of the award-winning
titles Splosion Man and The Maw, Comic Jumper is the team’s most ambitious
game yet. Freebies: Free, all new unlockable Splosion Man single-player
and multiplayer levels included in Comic Jumper!
